BUCKTAILS - Whipfinish - May 6, 2013
Closing the back hatch on the Xterra, I turned in clumsy wader boots fighting the loose gravel and headed for the water. It was an early spring morning and today I would be hunting trout. That's what I call streamer fishing when eventual meat for the table is the intended goal. To me it's back to the basics, tying on a traditional Bucktail streamer and pounding water in the places that experience had shown me the trout should be. It goes all the way back to my first days with a spinning rod, flicking CP Swings and Colorado spinners in their silver and gold hammered regalia.
